Health & Fitness Myths!
It is quite a revelation putting this together as it reminds me just how far and fast Sports and Fitness science moves! Again – I am going to make a smallish basic list – if you’d like any advice please feel free to call me for a no-obligation discussion on anything you like!! Please leave a message and I promise to get back to you (or e-mail).
You cannot spot reduce areas of fat! I USED to say this – and in terms of ‘toning’ it still holds true. However, you CAN reduce tummy, butt, and muffin top fat IF you know the cause which is hormonal (the Endocrine System),
Endless sit ups will get me that six pack! Nope! There are 3 perfect ideals for a 6 pack:
nutrition, myotatic crunches and working transverse abdominals – oh, and fixing tight flexors will really help to tilt the pelvis back so giving the appearance of a flat tum!
Running for hours is great for fat loss. It ain’t bad – but there are better ways. Love it? Carry on, but if you’re after a better effect for fat loss, in just 15 minutes we can tell you how! Burning cals even after you stop!
“If I am a woman I will bulk up with weights” NOT SO! We have less than a 10/th the testosterone of men (often a 40th). Even THEY need to work HARD to gain mass. With the right reps and weights you burn body fat and look good – you just need to know what this all means!!
And lads – do weights if nothing else!
